Jim Riess, Vice President of Estimating at Holland Construction Services, retired last month after 34 years. Riess was one of the original employees to join the Swansea-based company 34 years ago, which has grown to one of the top 15 contractors by revenue in the St. Louis area. Holland founder and CEO, Bruce Holland, said Riess’ integrity and work ethic is what led him to ask Jim to join him in starting Holland Construction, and his influence on others continued to play a tremendous role in building Holland into what it is today.
